2 of 7 Blogpadozzle: Fallen

Author--> Lauren Kate

Review--> 4/5

Release Date--> December 8th 2009

Product Description from Amazon.ca

There's something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.

Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price's attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce--and goes out of his way to make that very clear--she can't let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.


This book has a couple key things that I loveeee in books, 1) its LARGE, I love big books, why get involved in a book and the characters for it to end so quickly? Fallen caps off at 464 pages, but if big books scare you don’t be intimidated, it’s a quick easy read. 2) I won’t spoil anything, but what you’ve probably pieced together from the title and cover art… angels may be involved. Angels seem to be the new “it” thing, and I must say I think I’m starting to become a fan, after all who doesn’t like the hot bad-boy-who-was-good thing. And 3) and finally, I love the cover! It’s beautiful and leaves the imagination run wild! Before I even heard of the book I knew I needed to read it because the cover was so beautiful. I have a thing for big bold stated simple covers, such as Twilight. Simple is sensational (remember that girls).

I know from other blogs I have read that some follow bloggers didn’t love Fallen, and I must admit I didn’t love it… but I definitely enjoyed the read. I wasn’t hooked with the main male lead, I found him to standoffish. Hot one minute and cold the next, Lauren Kate explains why this is so, but it didn’t appeal to me. I like my boys either there are gone, you know?

The plot was alright. I felt like at times things were sluggish, and I wanted to scream from some smooches to finally happen, but when that part of the book catches up I think it fulfills things nicely. There are to many mini plots going on though, I think it complicates the storyline a bit, and leaves readers a little confused at the end. However, all in all it was an enjoyable read, and a test to this statement I will read the next book in this series.

Oh and CONGRATS to Lauren Kate, a little birdie has told me that Fallen’s rights have been bought for a possible movie version of the book! How exciting!!
